I was called into my GP's surgery today as I had requested my Evorel Conti on repeat and the Doc they would not prescribe it until I had been in for my yearly check up (fair enough) I didn't see my usual GP as I would have had to wait over a month!! so the GP I did see gave me the 'talk' telling me at my age (66) and over the next 5 years the probability of me having a heart attack etc., could be 40% *sigh*.. I remained firm and told him politely that as far as I am concened, the benefits outweigh the risks. He said I will be asked to wean off. I have slowly reduced my patch over months to a half now and do not intend to stop taking HRT voluntarily. So many GP's lack information and it makes me wonder if it's a 'cost related thing' as I know HRT is expensive. But.. they will happily dish out statins, anti depressants etc., like sweets... I stuck to my guns today and I am quite pleased with myself lol! Onwards and upwards ladies
